Vancouver Island (Reuters)
Day 1 - Vancouver Island Blizzard 2006 -
Chilled Vancouver Islanders faced their first day of winter hell today, as
6-8 inches of the peculiar white stuff fell, bringing the island to its
knees and causing millions of dollars worth of damage to the marijuana
Scientists suspect that the substance is some form of frozen water
particles and experts from Saskatchewan are being flown in. With
temperatures dipping to the almost but not quite near zero mark, Islanders
were warned to double insulate their lattes
before venturing out.
Ladysmith police recommended that people stay inside except for
emergencies, such as running out of espresso or biscotti to see them
through the Island's most terrible storm to date. The local Canadian Tire
reported that they had completely sold out of fur-lined sandals.
Drivers were cautioned to put their convertible tops up, and several have
been shocked to learn that their SUV's actually have four wheel drive,
although most have no idea how to use it.
Weary drivers faced soggy sushi, and the threat of frozen breast implants.
Although Dr. John Blatherwick, of the Coastal Health Authority reassured
everyone that most breast implants were perfectly safe to 25 below,
down-filled bras are flying off the shelves at Mountain Equipment Co-op.
"The government has to do something," snarled an angry Trevor Warburton.
"I didn't pay $540,000 for my one bedroom condo in Victoria so I could sit
around and be treated like someone from Toronto."
